Children In Deep Poverty 2017-11-13T21:28:18+00:00

Children in Deep Poverty (below 50% of the federal poverty level)

Growing up in poverty is the single greatest risk to children’s well-being. When families face economic hardship, children are more likely to experience a range of adversities that may impact their development and limit their opportunities for success as adults. Children living in deep poverty and young children are at the greatest risk. For a family of four in Kentucky, living in deep poverty means surviving on an annual income of $12,018 or less.
